I am new to the site and this group. I was diagnosed with type one in September of 2009 at age 24, am now 25. I have searched lots of places on the internet and have yet to find anyone close to my age who is also a new type 1. I've met a few people my age who have type 2 or have had type 1 since they were kids, but it's just not the same. It seems that everyone in this group is the parent of a new type 1, but I am hoping to find friendship in someone like myself. Anyone out there?
